A:   Thank you for contacting ask the doctor.
Acne is due to the clogging of the skin pores with either dust or oil.
Therefore, I recommend you use non-oily face creams. It is essential that you deeply clean you skin with the bet suited face wash. It is better if the face wash is antibacterial. Your dermatologist would prescribe anti- biotic creams (containing clindamycin). This is very useful for pus filled acne. Cold compress on the acne may help relieve the pain. Lacto- calamine would work on the marks.
Using Cocoa-butter containing creams are also effective on the acne marks.
Hope this information was useful.
